A 15-year-old boy has died after going under the water and not resurfacing at Quinn's Pond Friday evening.

Boise Firefighters say the emergency call came in around 7 p.m.

The dive team was able to locate the boy 23 minutes after being dispatched and pulled him from the water.

A witness tells KBOI 2News the teen was with three other teenage boys.

"Their 16 year old friend went on the rock over there, his friends asked him if he knew how to swim," Garth Sears, the witness, told KBOI 2News. "He didn't come up again."

Firefighters say the teen was not wearing a life preserver. He was taken to the hospital.

The Ada County Coroner's Office will identify the teen.
